I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that is one poorly designed car.

Regarding the wheels…Is there any way to get ahold of the owner…I believe those wheels were only 1 of two sets ever made by Kelsey Hayes…I have the other set..

that man has a serious collection. glad he drives them. those wheels look like custom 8 bolt pontiac wheel from the catalina and bonniville’s from the day.

what a great attitude. just a guy who loves cars and loves to drive them. which is what they are meant for. to be driven.

Front, sides, interior and roof look great and what an interesting story. The rear though is much too Zagato or as disappointing as the rear of the TVR Tuscan. love the interior door cards with Corvette written on them. Looks like it would be great to view the world from with those huge windows.

Just FYI, the “g” in Vignale is not pronounced as a hard “g”.
